years if he were elected. american people had expected that the president of the united states would be able to describe what he's going to do in the next four years, but he can't. >> he seems to be getting some traction with that argument, lay out exactly what president obama would do in a second term. >> sure. george it's pretty clear, i make two points here, one, after a decade of war, both in afghanistan and iraq, the most important thing that we have to do now is bring american troops home and battle for future and strength america at home. that's the most important point to be made and that battle means doing what has done from president clinton to president obama, investing in our roads and bridges to make we have the 21st century economy built on the 21st century foundation. and then third, investing in the new technology and the understoodmental research. making sure we have tax fairness where the middle class aren't taking the brunt of the tax system. the most important thing right now for a second term is to do what has done work in the past. investing in america. if you g
